Hillsdale Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
Hillsdale is a Southwest Portland neighborhood with a decidedly suburban feel. It feels quite far from downtown, though it’s just a short drive away.
Hillsdale is home to a newer public library branch that is especially popular among families, along with Wilson High School. One of the community’s landmarks is Baker and Spice, a local bakery that is a great place for meeting up with friends. Other stores include a Fred Meyer and a coop grocery store. For a fun night out, check out the McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery. During the summer months, the Hillsdale Farmers Market is a popular attraction.
The neighborhood can be walkable depending on where you live. Parts are too hilly to make walking convenient, and some streets lack highways. It’s easiest to walk if you live near the commercial areas, which tend to be in strip malls concentrated along certain streets of Hillsdale, particularly on Capitol Highway.
The neighborhood offers plenty of parks. Runners and cyclists love George Himes park, while runners enjoy the trails stretched along SW Terwilliger Boulevard. Dog owners frequent Hillsdale Park, while parents prefer the playground at DeWitt Park. Just south of Hillsdale is the expansive Gabriel Park.
The winding, laid-back residential streets of Hillsdale give it a relaxed, suburban feeling. Established neighborhoods with older homes are occupied by retirees, professionals, and families who want a small-town suburban neighborhood with all of the amenities offered by big-city Portland. Many of the homes on top of the hill offer great views of Portland.
